This is the only place I have seen that says we have signed Person. I have not seen it anywhere else. What gives?

There was a link to a Baseball America story (IIRC) that mentioned Robert Person with the White Sox. The thread about the subject here states that the news was via ESPN-1000 Radio in Chicago, however, this news is not posted on ESPN Radio's website, ESPN, or the official site, so I have no idea what is going on.

Let's just hope KW didn't assume Bob Person and Robert Person were the same people.

I'm happy we signed him, but if it turns out we didn't I won't be too devasted. REmember when somebody posted we had signed Ponson, then we didn't - that sucked.

It's too bad this offseason has been so boring we have to make things up.

I talked to a source tonight who confirmed this is indeed true.

Why isn't it being reported anywhere besides ESPN Radio Chicago then?

They're hoping to energize the crowd at SoxFest with the news of the signing of Person.

Because the deal hasn't been officially announced through a White Sox press release. If it were bigger deal, then websites would be flooded with information on the deal. But since its a minor league deal for a player that hasn't been good since 2001, they will wait for the press release instead of having an article now and then another when the official press release is made.
